About a week ago, I asked Kolette if she would add some green grapes to the grocery list. She usually just picks up red grapes and I was jonesin’ for some green ones. She must have gone to the store in the last few days, because yesterday morning, lo and behold, I found my green grapes waiting in the bowl on the counter while Ko was away working her keister off at Jim’s Gym (for more on her escapades there, check out her blog here–or for one of my favorite Jim’s Gym posts click here).
Anyway, as I worked my way through the grapes, it wasn’t long until I noticed that these were not your ordinary, average, everyday, grapes. It quickly became evident that these were some sort of “Super Grapes,” or that possibly someone had slipped some steroids into this batch of Vitis Vinifera (I guess you could say they might have been juicing).
And then, it was there—the largest grape Ko or I had ever seen. The other ones were big, but this one was second to none. It barely seemed like a grape at all. We took it around and compared it to other items around the house, and laughed and joked about what we saw. We even took pictures so you can see for yourself.
It was only a few minutes, and it was just some silly grapes, but it brought some joy to our day. But, that’s how it goes. Often, it’s the little, crazy things that bring us the happiness we need to make it through the day. That said, it falls upon us to find those ridiculous things that can lighten your day, and take some of the pressure off.
So, wanting to hear other little quirky things you find to bring joy into your lives, I’m going to giveaway. It’s an autographed DVD. In order to qualify, you need to leave some silly, little thing you’ve used to bring some joy to your life—maybe even take it upon yourself to find something to get you giggling in the next few days.
Either way, leave your comment and you’ll be entered in the giveaway.
And, in honor of the grape, Kolette’s agreed to make the giveaway a little more “juicy” by adding some of her great scrapbooking swag for you or your spouse.
Now comes your chance. Let ‘em fly. The more ideas that get posted the more resources we’ll all have to live lives with a little more gladness, the more ways we’ll find to make life just grape.
To qualify, comments must be posted by 10:00pm PST Sunday, November 8
